Forum Message re Hope or Acceptance
- Category: Self-Help
This is an ongoing meditation and anchoring place for when you are reaching and stretching and growing toward more recovery and healing without awareness to help you know where you are and where you are going.
I said to my soul, be still
and wait without hope,
for hope would be hope for the wrong thing
wait without love,
for love would be love of the wrong thing
there is yet faith,
but the faith and the love are all in the waiting.
Wait without thought,
for you are not ready for thought
So the darkness shall be the light,
and the stillness the dancing.
--T. S. Eliot from East Coker in The Four Quartets
This poem describes where you are and and is your guide. Let your own darkness be your light. Learn to rest and dance in your own stillness.
The rest will come. :)

Tonight, feeling good about myself and my life, I read this poem and hear an enormous wise serenity message. My image was of a fetus in the womb or a seed in the earth.
Living and being before awareness and before birth is a rich no name time where the darkness is the light and the stillness is the dancing.
Joanna - I've been cruising around the new site and ran into one bump. When I view it on my phone (Windows Phone 7) I can't log in. The site is rendering on my phone so when I touch the login icon it brings up the FAQ instead of the pop up box for username and password. Can you check with your computer guru on this please. It would be a major bummer to not be able to post from my phone! Thank you.
I really like this poem, feels reassuring! thanks Joanna!
